Well I have just committed the first version of the home brewed Diigo module to drupal.org. It's a sandbox project so you can't find it on drupal.org. it's located here. And I'll be posting a page I will be making for it here later. You can see an example of it on the bottom of this blog. I also put it in a JavaScript slideshow to display more than the top 3 bookmarks.

It's been a long while since I have posted here but it has been awhile since I have had the time to do anything with this blog. but last week I made some time to move this site over to Drupal 7. Also I had months ago completed a mock up for a new site design and now that new design is up and running on this site. (It has a Koch snowflake in the logo, which is pretty awesome as far as I'm concerned.) Also I have written a few jQuery plug-ins on the site. Namely the the code preview block that you can see now on some of the blog posts, and the new slider for the portfolio.

New Site Design

Although the old design had some cool features it didn't look very good in Internet Explorer. This new design allows me to show off some CSS 3 features and still look good in IE. Also this design looks decent in older versions of IE namely the aged Internet Explorer 6. The transparent pngs on the old design looked bad although the site was functional in that browser. Unfortunately it looks like even today IE6 still holds 23% of the market share, so IE6 support is still a must with any commercial web design.

I had a little project I was working on this week to fill in the portfolio section. and I thought it would be fun to turn it in to a Drupal theme. you can see the HTML and CSS in the portfolio section I named it Pink.

You can download a copy of it to use with your own Drupal blogs or projects as I am releasing it under the GPL license. I have included the psd files in the tarball in case anyone wants to change the graphics of the theme.

I finally got the site up and running and all the kinks worked out of the custom Drupal theme. It took a little longer than thought it would but Drupal despite the steep learning curve is very customizable. I was even able to get my cool stretched out carbon atom links at the top.
